The Japanese word ‘Kemuri’ translates to ‘Smoke’ in English.

So it is fitting that Austin’s newest Japanese restaurant places a delicious focus on smoking all manner of delectable, tapas-style dishes. Kemuri Tatsu-Ya, owned and operated by the same folks behind the universally adored Ramen Tatsu-Ya, is a thrilling new addition to Austin’s bustling culinary scene.

With a traditional Japanese Izakaya-style interior and a menu that borders on the ludicrously expansive, we’ll let the photos (courtesy of Do512 Head of Photography Roger Ho) do the talking. Enjoy.
